East End Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, King Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

For 30+ five star reviews - vrbo 207759

Welcome to Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. These are individually owned condos. And while the name says "resort" we lack most all the amenities that you would find at a typical resort. For example, there is not a restaurant on site, no spa, no tennis, no cabana boy....but you do get to be in a condo that is closest to the beach in all of St Thomas. You are literally step to the beach with an awesome unobstructed view and the sunrise over St John is unbelievable.

For more pics and a travel guide on Sapphire Beach and Beachtacular! You can access my web site via the links in VRBO. Most all questions you may have can be answered in the travel/vacation guide that is published on my web site. The travel/vacation guide is 10 pages of very useful information that is a must read for those that are new to the US Virgin Islands and Sapphire Beach.

Building E has wonderful views of the sunrise; you will love waking up each morning to a beachtacular sunrise whether in bed, or on the patio, simply amazing!

This beach front one bedroom condo is on the ground floor at Sapphire Beach. The patio steps onto the beach at the quiet end of the resort (bring your water shoes if you want to snorkel in front of condo, as it is rocky at the waters edge). Our ground floor building E beach front suite offers a king bed. The suite includes a bedroom area, sitting area with cable and TV, kitchen with appliances, tile bathroom with shower and double sinks. The private patio looks out to beautiful St. John. Beautiful! Listen to the gentle waves in the background as you dine on your patio or relax in your comfortable accommodations.

Wake up and look out your door and see the beautiful sunrise, white sandy beach and blue water. Enjoy the wonderful snorkeling just steps from your door. The location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Step right out to the quiet beach or take a very short walk to the pool or marina - slip rentals and day trips are available. Red Hook and the ferry to St. John are just minutes away. Red Hook and St. John have great dining opportunities and plenty of nightly dancing and fun...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas - great snorkeling!!

Contact us for availability. We would love to have you!

Why Bernard J Arroyo chose St. Thomas

It is right on the beach! This truly is one of the best locations in St Thomas if you desire to be directly on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a review a guest left (it is posted on another vacation rental site/AirBNB).

“Bernard was an excellent host, and his condo is beautiful. Overall, we had a great stay. Bernard took the time to answer all of my questions over the phone before our trip, and helpfully provided us the names and locations nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and bars. The condo is right on the beach, with an amazing view of St. John across the water - you can't ask for much more than that. Waking up to the sound of the waves was blissful. We found the best place to go in the water is on the northern side of Sapphire Bay, about a 3-minute walk from the condo along the beach, where the water is much clearer and the sand is more fine. The resort had a nice pool area, and felt very safe. Most of the guests appeared to be couples in their 30s and 40s, along with a few families with young kids. The resort is conveniently located about a 2-minute drive from Red Hook, with quick access to the ferry to St. John (which is a must-see), and some pretty cool bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying at this condo.”

Location wonderful

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Construction mess and parking lot condition were disappointing. Unit itself was clean and well maintained.

Gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. You will100% not be disappointed if you stay here. You are a four dollar cab ride to red hook. 15 minutes tops from Magen's Bay. The only thing that concerned me before getting there was not being able to jump right in the ocean and swim but if you walk right past the pool you can walk right into the water (I knew that before we arrived because I did the research). Bernard is so helpful and kind. The condo is gorgeous and clean. The view is literally breath taking. When you open the doors in the morning- your always like wow! It's relaxing and the balcony is perfect. It's quiet and the waves at night are the perfect sound. We napped on the balcony in the afternoons. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

Couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! The condo was just what we needed, close to plenty of restaurants, on the beach, and very nice and roomy for 2 people. We absolutely loved the patio! We spent every night sitting in the lounge chairs enjoying the breeze as the sunset and the boats came into the marina. The pool on the property was very nice as well. I would highly reccomend this property for a romantic getaway.

The perfect place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and this was our first time visiting St. Thomas. We really couldn't have been more lucky to book this condo not knowing the locations and distances of other sights we wanted to see. Sapphire Beach was the closest we could get to Redhook which is where we spent most of our meal time. The taxi ride from the condo to Redhook is $4/per person which Bernard gives you all of this information. We were so amazed to discover the beautiful white sandy beach just in front of buildings A & B (literally a 1 minute walk from this unit). The beach in front of this unit is gorgeous as well, but also rocky and not ideal for swimming. Banana Cabana was awesome and the ladies there have the best spirit. Be sure to get their rum punch! It was the best one we found on the island. The condo unit itself was clean and well kept. We didn't try the oven, but the microwave was a little older and isn't really dependable. We tried making popcorn 3 times- had to microwave it for 6 minutes and half the bag popped and then quickly burned. Fridge and freezer work great! We ended up buying a 24 pack of water to make our own ice with and it was quick to freeze! (the tap water on the island may not be the best..) We spent a lot of time on the patio here where there's a table and chairs for meals and lounge chairs on the lower part of the patio for relaxation. We did spend a few mornings on these lounge chairs watching the sunrise from behind St. John. If this is your first visit to the island or just Sapphire Beach, read Bernard's travel guide! It was all so helpful to us! After visiting here, we've seriously considered moving to Sapphire Beach (from San Diego) and we'll be watching for a good one to come up for sale!!!! Thank you Bernard for your awesome hospitality!

Condo could not be closer to the water

  • 5 of 5

We made the best possible choice with this condo. The owner was great not only was the room what he promised but he offered help with planning and anything we needed. The room is right on the beach with the ocean 20 steps from the beautiful spacious patio. Bottom floor is the way to go. This condo is on the east end with a rocky beach which we loved because there was no people traffic. It was like our private beach. Pool was very close and on the other side like 1-2 minute walk is beautiful sand. Nothing is as spread out as the pictures online make you think. And the price of this condo was so affordable!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in various condos at Sapphire Beach over the past few years and this one was by far the best. Not only did we enjoy the location, but Bernardo was exceptionally easy to work with. Thank you!
